Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Saltburn-by-the-Sea

Saltburn-by-the-Sea holiday cottages are a stone’s throw from nostalgic seaside amusements, elegant Victorian architecture and a sweeping sandy beach. This classic English resort lies on the rugged North Yorkshire coast, 12 miles east of Middlesbrough. Originally a fishing village with a reputation for smuggling, a more atmospheric base for exploring this spectacular stretch of coast would be hard to find.

From holiday cottages in Saltburn-by-the-Sea, take a stroll into the town centre and explore the lovely selection of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. You’ll notice striking historical landmarks, such as the Ship Inn, which dates back to the 17th century and remains a popular spot for a pint of Yorkshire ale overlooking the waves. There are also a number of grand Victorian buildings – a reminder of the iron industry that helped the town thrive. Next, take the Saltburn Cliff Lift – one of the world’s oldest funiculars – from Upper Promenade down to the beach and explore the pier, which is home to a popular fish and chip shop and a variety of amusements. If you fancy continuing your wander, follow the forest footpath through the Valley Gardens, into the Italian Gardens and on to the old railway viaduct.
